"Tuning '77" - a seamless audio supercut of an entire year of the Grateful Dead tuning their instruments, live on stage. Chronologically sequenced, this remix incorporates every publicly available recording from 1977, examining the divide between audience expectation and performance anxiety.

Absolutely love listening to this, although I have to say that this is about the same amount of tuning from just one night on 12/31/1978. [chuckle...]

Subject: Too Much fun!
Awesome sound quality of one of my favorite parts of a Dead show, trying to figure out what they were going to play based on the tuning.
The only one I can say for certain that I know where it was from is the first Lady With a Fan opener to Terrapin Station from the Swing Auditorium in San Bernardino in '77, the only show I ever attended with a significant "breakout", and one that they opened the show with.

Subject: Name that tune
I just wasted an hour and a half trying to guess which song they were about to play.
Thanks for nothing, Michael.
No, seriously. Thanks. It was actually kinda fun.

I have had wonderful dozing-off experiences listening to '77 first sets over the years. What a pleasant surprise to find this supercut. I will put this on at relatively low volume over earbuds and drift away ... thank you so much

Like a pregnant woman. Perpetual birth. A never-ending anticipation of all possibilities. Hinting at the 99 Billion names of God. An undefined expansion not needing destination.

Subject: unbelievable
So i have been listening to this while working around the house today.. with folks coming in and out. SOME comments like "wow i knew the dead took along time to tune up but" .. "Oh I know this tune.." "I think we were at this show".. to the stock WTF are you listening to.. etc.. 77 was a year I caught quite a few shows but this blows the mind..luv it..how, or why you did this does not really matter.. the quality is superb.. and you take some of the tune ups right to the door of the intro note on a few occasions..complete with quips and banter, nice job the work of a true mad man ,, or a complete Dead head... be well Merry Christmas....in light of recent events,, we all could use this sort of fun right about now..Music DOES HEAL...

Subject: Where's the epic concert?
After listening to these guys tune up for, like 3 hours, I was expecting pretty much the most epic concert ever.

A concert to follow this much tuning wouldn't merely put hair on your chest, it would put flesh on the bones of the T-Rex at the Carnegie museum in Pittsburgh. And then reanimate the now fleshy skeleton. Then the dinosaur would rampage through the city tossing cars around with abandon and eating investment bankers, politicians, and lawyers.

In fact, while we're on the subject of Pittsburgh, this concert would singlehandedly be so awesome as to breathe fire back into the long-defunct steel mills.

In fact, this concert would be so badass, the earth would depart its orbit to hit the moon. Then the moon would ricochet off of Mars and crash into the sun. Bam! Moon ball, solar pocket - a perfect bank shot! Then the sun would explode.

So can somebody post a link or something?
